Call out the first aid!
Well, back to the beginning of the list as far as reviewing (which is fine). This is a Universal newsreel which features LBJ's first state of the union address, which is fascinating as we get a glimpse of the preparation it goes into it (24 speech writers!), after that we see a rare opening of the Berlin Wall for a brief time so that visitors can visit east/west germany. I never knew they hadf those provisions in there in the first place. Finally, we end it of course, with Barrel Jumping! I am not sure anyone has competitions for that anymore (last I saw BJ was in the 70's) so it was great to see it again. As a matter of fact, all of this was fascinating to watch.
